  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 3 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped nuts

Cream butter and sugar.  Beat egg yolk and add.  Mix in cinnamon and flour.  Spread on lightly-buttered 10- by 15-inch baking pan with 1/2 inch sides.  Batter should cover pan.  Brush slightly-beaten egg white over top of batter.  Sprinkle with chopped nuts and pat lightly.  Bake in 325 degree oven for 30 minutes.  While still warm, cut into bars, about 1 inch by 2-1/2 inches, but do not remove from pan until cool.

YIELDS: 4 dozen bars
